Non-Surgical Procedures – Richmond, VA
Dr. Steven Montante has many years of experience providing a variety of non-surgical procedures for his patients in Richmond, Virginia. These state-of-the-art procedures can improve the look of your skin, combat the aging process, or much more.
Below are the non-surgical procedures that we provide at our Richmond office.
BOTOX® is a popular injectable product that smooths lines and wrinkles caused by muscle activity. These include frown lines, crow’s feet, and lipstick lines.
Injectable / Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are injectables for the face and neck that add volume where it has been lost due to aging. They can smooth wrinkles and deep folds, as well as improve sagging jowls and hollowed cheeks or temples. The ones we use most frequently are Juvéderm® and Juvéderm® Voluma, but we also offer Vollure and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
Skin Care Treatments
We offer a number of skin care treatments, including facials, medical grade skin care products, and chemicals peels of varying depths. We can evaluate your skin and make recommendations for you to improve many common issues, such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, acne, acne scars, and sun damage.
If you wish you had fuller, sexier lips, this is the procedure for you. We provide Lip Augmentation using Juvéderm®, Volbella, or Platelet Rich Plasma injections, which add natural fullness that lasts about a year.
Dermaplaning and Facials
Besides facials to improve the health and appearance of your skin, we provide Dermaplaning. This procedure removes the top layer of skin to treat fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and scars.
Medical Grade Skin Care Lines
Medical-grade, prescription cosmetics are not only great to keep your skin healthy, but they assist in healing after a surgical or non-surgical procedure, such as laser skin resurfacing. Dr. Montante prescribes two of the most advanced cosmetic lines currently available – ZO by Zein Obagi and Skinmedica. Both companies provide a full range of skin care products, including sun protection tailored to your skin’s particular issues.
Eclipse – Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Our bodies have the incredible ability to heal themselves, thanks in large part to microscopic cells in our blood called platelets. PRP therapy separates platelets from the blood, releasing a flood of growth factors that trigger tissue repair, cell renewal, and collagen production. Our experts can administer PRP through injection or microneedling, depending on the patient’s desired goals. The process is quick, comfortable, and works for all skin types. When conducted by an expert, PRP can reduce fine lines, firm lax skin, minimize scars, improving skin texture, and much more. Montante Plastic Surgery has specifically chosen Eclipse PRP because of its superior quality and separation abilities.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser Skin Resurfacing is a very popular treatment that smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Many patients have this procedure after a Face Lift in order to target the remaining superficial lines on the surface of the skin. The laser also increases your skin’s elasticity, stimulates natural collagen production, and can reduce the appearance of scars. It is effective on the face, neck, chest, and hands. Dr. Montante is one of few plastic surgeons in the Richmond area who personally uses the RF CO2 technology.
Skin Cancer Treatment
Dr. Montante is experienced with the most advanced treatments for skin cancer. Whatever technique is used, the goal is to remove all of the cancer with the least possible scarring. Mohs surgery is one method that allows the surgeon to remove a small number of skin cells at a time until all of the cancer cells are gone. This leaves as much healthy skin intact as possible.
Laser Scar and Age Spot Removal
Laser technology has made great strides in recent years. It can be used to correct many skin problems, including spider veins on the face or legs, depressed scars (including acne scars), and dark age spots. The result is smoother skin with more even skin tone.
Microblading is a permanent makeup technique to enhance sparse eyebrows so that they frame your eyes better. Pigment is added to fill in spaces, reshape, and darken the eyebrows. Some people require more than one treatment for optimal results.
Microneedling, sometimes called skin needling, is a skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates your body to produce new skin cells and collagen. It involves penetrating the skin with tiny needles that cause your body to go into healing mode. As a result, a host of problems can be improved, including skin texture and tone, fine lines, enlarged pores, and scars.
Medical & Cosmetic Permanent Pigmentation Tattoo
Countless men and women have enlisted the help of cosmetic and medical tattooing (micropigmentation) techniques to enhance their beauty. Medical and cosmetic tattooing can be the solution for clients with Parkinson’s, alopecia, little to no eyebrow hair, visible scars, breast reconstruction, hair loss from chemotherapy, cosmetic allergies, and many other conditions. The procedure also offers permanent makeup options like permanent liners, eyebrow microblading, and more.
